Nitro Game Injection #161: Speed Slider (SDCC Recap )


NOTE: GameFuel for August 1st and NGI for August 7th are canceled. We’ll be back on August 8th!

Kyle and Slider are back behind the wheel this week as Larry is distracted by the wiles of Otakon. Despite meeting Kyle in person and finding out how terrible he really is, Slider decides to stick around, and the two discuss some of the awesome experiences that they had at San Diego Comic-Con. They FINALLY met Archie ComicsSonic and Mega Man series writer and NGI regular Ian Flynn, saw and played all sorts of cool new and upcoming video games, and otherwise survived the stench of the sweaty nerd conglomerate. Kyle gets jealous that Slider managed to grab a picture with THE Jamie Hyneman, and details his post-SDCC follies (THANKS LEA. )

In between all this talk of SDCC, the two manage to fit in some excellent music, including tracks from I Fight Dragons, Ryu Umemoto, Dorothy’s Cafe, N-JOY, Rellik, halc, Buckner & Garcia, and TWO preview tracks from the upcoming ‘We are ROCK-MEN!’ album!
